Saudi MOH Reports Another Primary MERS Case from Najran


Posted about 6 hours later than usual, the Saudi MOH reports another Primary case from the southern town of Najran, very near the Yemen border.

Over the past 3 weeks we've seen at least 5 cases reported from this region, including 1 death.

Today's case is listed as a `Primary' case, with no known risk exposure cited.  `Primary cases’ are those that occur in the community when there is no known exposure to a healthcare facility or to a known human case.

Over the past 3 years, roughly 46% of Saudi cases are listed as either `primary’ or as from an undetermined origin.
